groceries in Westpunt along with room questions

Hi travellers,

I am staying at the Kura Hulanda Lodge from 12/20/12 to 12/25/12 and I am curious about a couple things that I hope can be answered:

a) The all inclusive rate is outrageous and I was curious as to where I could purchase groceries nearby the Lodge? Are there grocers nearby to purchase food (i.e. beef, fish, etc.)

If so, how far are they from the hotel?

b) Where can you purchase beer, wine, etc. nearby? Are there liquor stores nearby or should I pick the beverages up in Willemsted? By the way, what is the cost of a case of beer at a grocer?

c) With the ocean front terrace room, is the refridgerator large enough to store beer, wine bottles, etc. or is the typical small college dorm fridge?

d) Do you know if the hotel organizes day trips to any area on the island such as Hato caves, etc.

e) Any room number recomendations for the ocean front terrace suites?

Thanks,

Jeff Keller

We stayed in Wespunt last year and there are no grocerie stores near that end of the island but there is a very small market just before you turn off the main road. You will want to pick up most things in town. As for fish there is a spot on the beach with in walking distance of Kura Hulanda where the local fisherman sell their morning catch.

The previous post is correct. Small market where you can get some basic stuff. Fish indeed with the local fisherman on the beach. That is really the best option for fish.

You have to head towards town to get bigger supermarkets. In Barber (10min) there is bigger market but it will bot be to the standards you have closer to town.

Rental car is recommended

Only one town Willemstad. The supermarket in Barber which is the village nearby has an ample selection but can not be compared to places like centrum, AH, Esperamos etc etc
